So while waiting for that patch to come out, I decided to play around with the 61 skill points that the DLC4 gives me. I decided to try out an all-phasewalk/melee build... I ended up with something like

The reason why I chose Phoenix is because I was going to test this out in Jakob's Cove, and I wanted the best use of Blackout. I also used a Catalyst class mod to reduce cooldown even more.

One thing that I have noticed is when I run headfirst into a group of zombies, kill one to activate phoenix, set them all on fire, then I activate phasewalk. I ran to get the Defiler who was outside of the group, and I melee'd him, killing him instantly.

But I didn't exit phasewalk. And no matter how many times I melee'd, the mobs would die but I wouldn't exit phasewalk. I had to wait until the timer reached 0 to exit (or press F again).

While I was in phasewalk, the combination of Phoenix and Radiance managed to kill enough zombies to fill my phasewalk cooldown again before I melee'd. With this in mind, I can actually melee infinately (especially with Phase Strike at 5), so long that enough mobs die while I am in phasewalk. And then, when the timer finally runs out, I can go into phasewalk again.

I did a quick search to see if it was already on the wiki, couldn't find anything about it (I even skimmed a few talk pages on the Phasewalk ability), so I thought I would share this hilarious exploit.

Could this be a practical gameplay strategy?

EDIT: I'm a noob, and an idiot. I meant to put this in the watercooler... SeventhGrave 17:00, October 30, 2010 (UTC)


If you kill enough enemies to drop your cooldown completely when you're in Phasewalk, you can Phasestrike all you want with your ungodly melee damage and not phase out after strikes. It's a glitch, yes, but a very useful one - especially for farming melee and action skill kills.  nagy   talkScorpio-fulllog     17:37, October 30, 2010 (UTC)


I discovered this glitch way back in May. Here's the relevant posting in the forum:

And yes, it becomes godly when used with an additional 3 Sirens all wearing Catalyst mods ^_^ Sreza 00:46, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
